On March 16 Breitbart News reported that the House voted to repeal the gun ban for military veterans and ARS is asking gun controllers to convince their Senators not to follow suit.
ARS posted a link that helps gun controllers write a letter to their Senators. The text of the link says, “Write a letter to your Senators saying that you OPPOSE legislation that would prevent the Department of Veterans Affairs from submitting mental health records to the National Instant Criminal Background Checks System,”
This is nearly identical to the tactics gun controllers used in trying to preserve the Social Security gun ban, which was structured almost identically to the gun ban for military veterans. In both bans, beneficiaries with a mental health moniker whose benefits are sent to a third party for financial management can be stripped of their Second Amendment rights without due process. The key is the mental health label, although such a label is so broad it encompasses everything from severe mental illness–bi-polar disease and schizophrenia–to moderate, treatable issues that may only be temporary. These latter mental health conditions could be anxiety or depression.
